|Location: Clark Lake YC on Clark Lake, south of
Jackson, Michigan which is just over an hour’s drive west
of Detroit. (see map and new pictures of landmarks
Directions: Exit I-94 onto Route 127 south. Turn
left onto Jefferson Road at the light, about 10 mi. south
of I-94. About 2 mi. later, turn left onto Hayes Drive
(which is the first dirt road east of Eagle Point Rd) in
front of a large red barn where there is also a small
yellow CLYC burgee sign posted on the corner for your
assistance (see photo below). Please note that if you are
coming from the east along Jefferson Road, you will
first come to Hayes Road opposite a large
church about 1/8 of a mile before you come to Hayes Drive.
Bear right at the fork in the road to enter the CLYC
grounds. There is a sign but as you can see below,
it can't be seen until the last second.
Facilities: Launch ramp or hoist, very atmospheric
clubhouse, washrooms, showers, meals available. CLYC
provides a fine play area (and babysitting) so that mom
and dad can yell at each other in peace out on the water.
Camping on club grounds is encouraged - and there
are lots of motels in the area.
Registration: 1800 to 2100 hrs Friday; 0830-1000
Programme: Coffee & doughnuts each morning;
lunch both days; delicious BBQ dinner & entertainment
Saturday night. 3 races after lunch Saturday; 2 races
before lunch Sunday.
Fees: Entry: about $25 (US) - lunches @ about
$3, dinners @ about $7 (US)
Miscellaneous: Challenging winds but a lovely fall
atmosphere, fine hospitality, a wonderful club, safe, warm
sailing waters (see steam rising from toasty water in
photo below while photographer, Uncle Al, shivers
in crisp air of a lovely fall morning!).
It is a unique and exciting experience to share the lake
with big fleets of Sunfish, Rebels, Interlakes, etc.
This event is well worth the
6-hour drive from Toronto.
